The new jumps season is fast approaching and that means there will be a host of potential future stars about to break on to the scene, many of them coming from the point-to-point field.

The vast majority of racing enthusiasts won’t see these horses until they appear on the track, but this book will give readers an edge before they make their debuts.

Jodie provides an in-depth analysis of about 80 horses, focusing on their physical appearance, character and likely optimum racing conditions.

In previous years Jodie has spotted and written about the early potential of many future stars including – most notably last season – Santini, Blackbow, Posh Trish, On The Blind Side, Carefully Selected and Brewin’Upastorm.

Subscribers to the Weekend Card will also receive regular updates on the horses I follow throughout the season.

The Point-To-Point Recruits features:

• An in-depth analysis of 77 lightly raced horses.
• Of those names there are a hand-picked 20 with ‘Star Potential’ which Jodie believes will do especially well for their new connections.
• A mare which is being aimed at Cheltenham’s November Listed Bumper.
• An ex-Tom Lacey inmate who is described as ‘top drawer’.
• A Stowaway gelding who took three furlongs to pull up after winning impressively.
• A Willie Mullins’ trained gelding with the potential to develop into a leading bumper performer.


Jodie says:

With more horses than ever before making their way through the ranks, Marten and I felt the time was right to warrant a stand-alone point‐to‐point book. Last year I had to whittle down the list to 40 horses for the Dark Horses Jumps Guide, due to restrictions in space, but this new opportunity allows me the scope to write about almost double that number.
